Learning philosophy provides a deeper understanding of all areas of life, including business, economics, science, criminology and society.

Our philosophy units teach you the philosophical frameworks for wrestling with issues such as the environment, politics, power, ethics, artificial intelligence, and outer space. 

A philosophy degree isn’t just theory. Working in business, information technology, public office and various other industries demands clear and logical thinking — this is what philosophical studies can teach you.

Use those skills to understand complex problems and find solutions that can make a positive impact on society.

Swinburne have always been incredibly kind, compassionate and able to both understand and push me where needed, and that is the kind of experience I would urge any student to engage with."
